Vampires Are Hot - House of Night Optioned

Vampires are definitely the hot ticket at the moment, In recent months we have seen the very successful launch of True Blood on HBO derived from the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse books, and the Twilight movie from Stephenie Meyer this past weekend did huge numbers despite lukewarm reviews and also an option on the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter stories from Laurell K. Hamilton.


Now the popular "House of Night" YA novels by P.C. Cast and daughter Kristen Cast have been optioned. Read the announcement released at Variety last week. To date there have been four books in the series. Book 5 - Hunted is due for release March 2009.

  2. I think I'm one of maybe 3 people that did not read the Twilight series of books. I have no interest in Young Adult books cuz I'm OLD.

    However, I have read the P.C. and Kristin Cast books. I found the first three of this series in a used book store cheap and since I'm a fan of P.C. Cast's former works I bought the 3 YA books.

    They are so good!I've recommended the series to several people and I'm happy to hear they've been optioned. I see them as a "Saved by the Bell/ Square Pegs" gone wild kind of show LOL.

  3. Hey Kimberley, I think maybe Rachel Caines Morganville Vampires might make a good series to adapt for TV as well.

    You're never too old Rebyj ! I am probably one of only a few guys who has read the Twilight series (and long before that pretender Twilight Guy]. LOL. A lot happens in Book 4 of House of Night and I expect Book 5 will be pretty intense.

  4. Oh yes, the Morganville Vampires would be another great one to see! :)
